CHOICES IN HIGHER EDUCATION There are a variety of postsecondary educational


institutions located here on the First Coast. The following gives you a more detailed look at each of them.


Agricultural, Technical and Specialized Colleges Colleges focus on preparing students for specific careers


in fields such as business, computer technology, cosmetology and seminary. They offer associate degrees, technical diplomas, apprenticeships and certificate programs. Some colleges even offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in certain vocational programs.


Private Colleges and Universities Private colleges and universities tend to be more expensive


than public institutions due to their reliance on tuition, fees, endowments and other private sources for funding. Unlike public colleges and universities, private institutions are smaller and can offer a more personalized education. These institutions also have selective criterion for their admissions.


Public/State Colleges and Universities Public/state colleges and universities are less expensive,


particularly for in-state residents, than private institutions. This is because they get most of their funding from the state government. Similar to private institutions, most have selective criterion for their admissions. Public institutions tend to provide more courses than private colleges and universities due to their larger size. In 2009, the Florida legislature changed the Florida Community College System to the Florida College System. Currently, 10 of the colleges under this system changed their names to incorporate the word “state.” These one-time community colleges now offer bachelor's degrees.
